With the news that Three is planning to hike the cost of it’s sim-only bill-pay plan by 25% in June, your mind might turn to switching plans.
The National Consumer Agency says that people save an average of €24 a month by switching plans, but few do so.
Enter Daniel McCarthy of KillBiller:
A primary reason why people don’t switch is confusion in selecting the right plan.KillBiller is a mobile application that analyses users’ actual phone usage against all of the plans available from Irish operators.
The app takes details of the calls, messages and data used by you on your phone and, based on this, calculates how much you would have spent on each plan.
Having found the right plan, KillBiller offers users the convenience of switching networks within the app.
Years ago I wrote some scripts to do something similar and the end result was a horrid mess that just about worked. In comparison, what the KillBiller guys have done is slick and actually useful to normal humans.
Killer name also.
